Our Trustees

PICT0002 (2)Frances Sword is the Chair of Talking in Tune
Frances spent her working life in museums; for many years she was the Head of Education at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge. Her main interests are in the arts; she paints and sings with ReSound, the Cambridge a cappella choir.

IMG_5540 2Roger Giddings  is our Treasurer.
Roger initially worked in the Film Industry, then obtained a BA in Architecture. Finding the thought of endless extensions too daunting he put his back into qualification as an Osteopath – and has since been working in and around Cambridge for over 30 years. He has been involved in running several companies, Physic the most recent, which at its peak had a work force of nearly 25 people. As retirement looms he can spend more time on Meditation and Taijiquan, and to his amazement has found a ‘voice’.
